What’s Your Middle Name?

Believe it or not, today is National Middle Name Pride Day. The day falls either on March 10 or on Friday of the 1st full week in March. So what's National Middle Name Pride Day do. As the title says it's design to produce pride in your middle name. Promoter Jerry Hill said: “It just seemed that people can tend to hide a middle name. They might do so for any number of reasons. What MNPD represents is a chance to let a person’s middle name receive the recognition that its giver most likely intended for it.” You can find out more about National Middle Name Pride Day here.

DFO: I'll go first. My middle name is Franklin. I was named after my father. Had he gotten to the hospital a few minutes earlier, I would have been Franklin Simas Oliveria Jr. But Mom didn't want me to be a "Junior." So she pre-empted him. Good call.

Question: What's your middle name and how did you get it?
